|Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter?||No|
|Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications?||No|
|Do you have hardware you would like to use but does not meet the stated BetaNet node specs? If so, please provide specs on that hardware below:|
|Why do you want to be a node?||I just like doing it. I believe that blockchain technologies are the future and they will change the world forever.|

|Why do you want to run a node in the xx network||
|What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?||The essence of a decentralized network is that there should be as many independent nodes as possible. By starting the node, I am one of them. This is how I contribute to decentralization.|

|In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?||To be honest, it is difficult for me to try to predict what will happen in the case of mass distribution of quantum computers. We'll see if that happens )|
I don’t think you can meet the GPU requirement (Nvidia Turing or Tesla GPU, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 or greater) from a Hetzner DC, can you?
I really like you motivation but we already have too much modes operating from a Hetzner DC, especially in Finland, which conflicts with the principle of real decentralization.
Do you have other options?
Hi. Thank you for your feedback. Of course, I can use another provider to rent a server.
And I also realized today that i need to use something more powerful than VPS.
I looked at the following configuration:
Ryzen 7 3800x, 32GB ram, 1024GB SSD, RTX 2070
Your is Russia with a node in Helsinki and running Finland.
And in a datacenter.
You don’t get my vote
Well. I didn’t know it was a problem. I can easily install a server in a data center in St. Petersburg. Russian Federation. Also, thank you for your feedback
Have my vote!
Thank you for your trust
Is there a reason you cant run a node from home?
My voice is your if you buy new hardware and place it in Saint-Petersburg.
Thanks for your support
When I leave the house, I turn off the power supply due to fire safety. I feel better this way )
Great to see that you are looking for solutions. You have my support!
Vote for you! Good application.
you have my vote
You get my vote, if you buy a hardware and run it at home in St. P
so you turn off the power???
What about the milk the meat and other food.
what about other hardware without power.
i find it a strange story
Reinsurance and anxiety are part of the mentality of Russian people. It’s normal that you find this strange.
I get your point but:
How do you get the full node spec with GPU I. The datacenter??
I can place my hardware in the datacenter
